According to The Baltimore Sun, Cox has called for the impeachment of Hogan for “malfeasance in office, misuse of the police power, violations of the separation of powers, theft of the people’s liberty and property, deprivation of the religious liberties of the people, and abuse of power under false pretenses.”
The former president’s endorsement record in congressional races is not perfect after North Carolina Rep. Madison Cawthorn lost his bid for renomination. But Trump is likely to do better in House and Senate contests than in gubernatorial contests.
Voters know their governors much better than they know their members of the House of Representatives or even their senators, who spend much of their time in Washington, D.C.
Governors are in the news more frequently than are most members of Congress, and often their jobs entail attracting new businesses, fixing the roads or improving schools — not the knee-jerk, ideological issues that automatically polarize voters these days.
That’s why Maryland voters could reelect Hogan twice and still vote for Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden for president, Massachusetts voters could reelect Republican Charlie Baker and still vote for Clinton and Biden, and liberal (and reliably Democratic) Vermont voters could continue to reelect Republican Gov. Phil Scott every two years since he was first elected in 2016.
